A Skyclimber has just arrived from Hobby King's U.S. warehouse!

I am illustrating assembly and the eventual flight on RCG here:

I'm thinking of buying full internals from one of the aileron planes. Then I could transfer everything without too much hassle. Today I installed a new aileron servo since the original was really twitchy. No chance to fly it yet.

Skyhawk: there's plenty of room to put new stuff in. Look on YouTube for skysurfer upgrade, a guy put standard servos and rec/esc in without too much trouble

I bought a couple of 370s actually. They fit but I haven't flown it yet.
I wish the video had some more details too.

Here are Elvill's rec's as your starting point.

Skysurfer uses DSM2 Hobbyking.com Parts
10g HK 2000kv bl motor
3x 5320 1.7g servos
6A plush esc
415 rx
4ch


Prop:
gws 5043 is great for extremely long runtimes as long as you use a 350 2S or bigger

You can see his videos here:

Mine has all of the stock parts, just placed a carbon rod in the canopy area for bracing, and with a clever install standing them up I am running the Zippy 350's with no issues.

I run with the Zippy 20c 350 and it works great just stock, flies forever. Braced some with CF in the cockpit area and wings as well, I will try and get some pics on here soon of it.

Just ordered a Skysurfer and two Zippy 20C 350mAh to go with. I'll add my usual http://studiorsdesign.com Suisse sticker set and give a it a proper sailplane look, might even drop in a light pilot figure. I really could have flown one of these on my holiday to the coast of Maine last week! One of our campsites was right on the water of Belfast Bay and a steady breeze all day, would have been nice sloping, my 2meter sailplanes are two big to carry around. Photos as soon as it arrives, here's a really nice video I found.

Cheers, Thompson
